fewer antibiotic Rxs for ear infections

You'll likely see even fewer antibiotic Rxs for ear infections.

More prescribers are now taking the "watchful waiting" approach, delaying antibiotics to see if the ear infection resolves on its own...instead of giving in to pressure from parents insisting on antibiotics.

Waiting avoids unnecessary antibiotic side effects...and lessens the risk of resistant bacterial infections. To help your pharmacist explain these risks, go to our PL Detail-Document for a copy of CDC's Antibiotics Aren't Always the Answer.
